This all-new quirky little French bistro-inspired lounge is the latest addition to the Salt Lake food scene.

Nestled in Salt Lake near water tank number 9, this place is the answer to the ever-increasing hangout spots in Salt Lake. The décor and vibe of this place is based on a vineyard with plenty of Instagramable spots. With wooden barrels being repurposed for table stands and wine crates as lamps dotting the ceiling of the lounge, you will be transported to the south of France. As you sip your favorite wine and enjoy the all-vegetarian gourmet menu you are bound to have a wonderful time under the stars. With their exclusive outdoor, on-table grill and hookah service you get the feeling of being in the countryside.

 

Chow Down

Now let’s talk food. Don’t let the all-vegetarian menu deter you from trying out this place. One of the things you must order when you are visiting The Dark Barrel is the Desi Quesadilla, which comes in the cutest little basket stuffed with corn and spinach, with a whole lot of cheese. If you’re in a larger group, be sure to order their gourmet flat bread pizza, the Vegetable Yakitori or even their Mezze Platter. One thing I can promise you is that you will love their assortment of dips and hummus.

The BBQ dip was definitely the showstopper for me. For people watching their waistline, this place has a variety of salads to offer and if, after eating your healthy salad, you want to indulge a little, be sure to order the warm apple pie baked in the pizza oven and served with a scoop of vanilla bean ice-cream.

Sip On

Coupled with the food and hookah, they have excellent cocktails and mocktails on their menu and an exclusive wine menu for the weekends for you to try. Be sure to order the mulled wine and the amazing gulkand- infused cocktail {betel-leaf flavored}. The Dark Barrel is a place where you come to enjoy your evening with friends and colleagues over food, drinks and live music by Kolkata’s underground bands.

Cost for two: About INR 1,000.

If you’re heading over this weekend, make sure to avail their introductory offers {running from December 21 to 24}: Hookah + 1 starter + 1 mocktail for INR 499; Hookah + 1 starter  + 1 mocktail + 1 main course for INR  799; Hookah + 1 starter + 1 main course + 1beer for INR  899.
